Family therapy and domestic violence:
The Work of Sistemas Humanos of Bogotá, Colombia
July 10, 2010
Dr. Villar will offer a unique practice model for working with family violence from a transdisciplinary perspective, involving whole communities in family interventions. The work focuses on construction of micro political interventions towards the acceptance of a legitimate other in the relationship.
Carlos Felipe will speak to the question of "the difference that makes the difference" in therapeutic conversations. Research conducted on the collaborative creative process between therapist and clients will be examined in this segment of the workshop.
Jeannette Samper will present her clinical work with a family struggling with the effects of incest. A Narrative and Collaborative approach was employed and ideas were developed to create an ethnic, sacred space where it was possible to speak of the unspoken. Themes of Machismo and gender differences were at the center of the work with the family.
